    You're One in A Million

    I made this for my best friends 60th Birthday. I love black and white patterns. It has 60 circles appliqued on it, the red circle in the middle represents - "she's one in a million". It has funky yarns and strings of beads attached. Enjoy looking.

    very pretty! I first read the title and I thought "no way she used 1 million peices in a quilt. none of us are quite that crazy!" but I like the red circle in the middle of the other ones. I hope she likes it!
    It's not a mistake, it's an unconscious decision to change the pattern.

    That looks like a fun quilt. It makes me think of a bubble bath Can we see a close-up of the adornments on some of those circles? Are they beaded strings on frayed yarn?

    This is a very special treasure for a very special friend. What a wonderful job you did and I am sure she will be thrilled. Wonderful job. Thank you for sharing.
